A unique shot was published: a weasel cub, riding on a woodpecker, soar high in the sky

What you will see now is not a drawing – a figment of human imagination.

This is not photoshop, but the most real case.

In the picture, you can see how a weasel flies astride a real woodpecker.

The photo was taken by an English amateur photographer, Martin Le-May in one of London’s parks.

However, we are not going to tell you today about the touching friendship of a weasel with a bird, as you might think.

Everything is much more prosaic – one of our heroes can become a dinner for another.

Weasels look like funny furry animals, but they are also known as nest-busters.

If necessary, they will eat not only eggs, helpless chicks, but also quite adult birds.

This time, something went wrong and the bird literally carried the predatory animal out of the nest.

The photographer says that he was going to show his wife the woodpecker on that very day, and therefore, during the walk, the camera was already prepared to take shots.

Suddenly, the woodpecker landed just 25 meters away from the couple.

Weasel got scared of people and ran into the grass, and the woodpecker flew on about his business.

We wonder if there will be an opportunity to see such a unique and rare case again, and especially to film it on camera?

Let’s hope so.
